24 And (A)Jehu [a]drew his bow with his full strength and [b]shot [c]Joram between his arms; and the arrow went [d]through his heart and he sank in his chariot. 25 Then Jehu said to Bidkar his officer, “Take him up and (B)cast him into the [e]property of the field of Naboth the Jezreelite, for I remember when [f]you and I were riding together after Ahab his father, that the (C)Lord laid this (D)oracle against him: 26 ‘Surely (E)I have seen yesterday the blood of Naboth and the blood of his sons,’ says the Lord, ‘and (F)I will repay you in this [g]property,’ says the Lord. Now then, take and cast him into the [h]property, according to the word of the Lord.”
